"Times" Guide to the European Parliament: June 1994 by Volume editor Robert Morgan
In a post-Maastricht Europe, the European Parliament has been transformed from a retirement home for yesterday's politicians to a key legislative institution. Today, its decisions directly affect the lives of everyone in the European Union. As Europe grapples with such daunting issues as relations with Eastern Europe, reform of the Common Agricultural Policy, enlargement of the European Union, free trade, the war in former Yugoslavia, and moves to a federal Europe, the voice of the European Parliament is being heard to greater and greater effect. This guide to the European Parliament should be suitable for libraries, academics, industry, government personnel, politicians and the media. It gives a photograph and detailed biography of every MEP, a full Europe-wide breakdown of the election results and voting patterns and detailed analysis by members of "The Times" political staff of the course of the election and its implications for the future of Europe.
